Family demand Boris Johnson and Dominic Raab ‘come clean’ after Harry Dunn crash driver spy bombshell

BORIS Johnson and Dominic Raab must “come absolutely clean” about when they learnt the killer of Harry Dunn was a secret US spy, the dead teenager’s family have demanded.

Lawyers representing American mum-of-three Anne Sacoolas sensationally admitted in a US Court that she was a intelligence agent.

Sacoolas fled Britain after a fatal smash with the 19 year old motorcyclist outside RAF Croughton, Northamptonshire in August 2019.

She was driving on the wrong side of the road but claimed diplomatic immunity as her husband worked at the US spy base.

But on Wednesday night,  the Alexandria district court in Virginia was told Anne Sacoolas was “employed by an intelligence agency in the US” at the time of the fatal collision – which was “especially a factor” in her flight from the UK.

Her lawyer said she fled the country due to “issues of security”. The Sun understands she had a “high flying career” in the CIA.

The bombshell revelations came out during Sacoolas’s bid to dismiss a civil claim for damages against her made by the late Harry’s family.

The suspect’s lawyer, John McGavin, told the court he could not “completely candidly” explain why the Sacoolas family left the UK – adding: “I know the answer, but I cannot disclose it.”

Sacoolas’s career in espionage was first revealed by the Press last year, but the US or UK government have never commented – and Sacoolas herself had remained tight lipped until now.

Harry’s grieving family have been kept in the dark for more than a year by the Foreign Office despite many pleas for information.

FAMILY’S ANGUISH

Last night the family said Harry’s father asked the Foreign Secretary “point blank in a meeting” at the FCO in January 2020 whether or not Mrs Sacoolas was working at the time of the crash.  

But Mr Raab’s response was that “she used to work for the State Department.”

The family’s spokesman Radd Seiger told The Sun: “We now call on Mr Raab to come absolutely clean to the parents and the British public about what he knew about Mrs Sacoolas’ employment status, when he became aware of it.”

“And what are the British Government is now going to do following this astonishing revelation to help the parents once and for all to get Justice for Harry?”

And Harry’s mum Charlotte Charles told ITV News: “I’ll never trust any of them again.”

And she said Mr Raab “should completely reevaluate the position he holds.”

“It’s beyond belief, the amount of times we’ve met with them,” she said.

“We should have been properly grieving in those first few months, we should have been given the chance. We deserve the truth. Who the hell have we got running the country?”

Both President Trump and President Biden have rejected British requests to extradite her back to face justice.

Probed on whether the US had “pulled a fast one” on the UK over withholding information about Sacoolas from the government, No10 told reporters: “we don’t comment on intelligence matters”.

But a spokesman insisted “she was notified to the UK Government by the US as a spouse with no official role”.

“I would emphasise that our position on this case remains unchanged, we have consistently called for her diplomatic immunity to be waived and believe that the US refusal to extradite her amounts to a denial of justice.”
